The predisposition to develop a special interest can have other effects on the development of relationship knowledge.Special interests have many functions for people with Asperger’s syndrome, and one of these is to acquire knowledge to understand bewildering aspects of their experiences.
All of these diagnostic characteristics will affect relationship skills throughout childhood, and will eventually limit an adult’s ability to achieve a long-term successful relationship.
While a young adult with classic autism may appear content with a solitary “monastic” lifestyle, this is often not the case with young adults who have Asperger’s syndrome or high-functioning autism.
Clinical experience has identified that the majority of such adolescents and young adults would like a romantic relationship.
I have recently developed a cognitive behaviour therapy program for children and adolescents with Asperger’s syndrome to explain the emotion of love and the ways to express that you like or love someone.
The program soon will be evaluated in a research study conducted by the University of Queensland in Australia.
